‘Save a Selfie’ is an interactive mobile app that allows members of the public to take ‘selfies’ alongside emergency equipment such as defibrillators, first aid kits and Life Rings. The images are uploaded to the platform and their locations are tagged on a map, making critical life-saving devices easy to find for both the public and the emergency services. The locations of devices can also be shared on social media.
Dublin Fire Brigade member and paramedic Seán Peters who developed the app said people typically walk past about 15 life-saving devices every day, but there is no data base of them or their locations. The app is available from the app store and the Google play store and can be downloaded from www.saveaselfie.org. @saveaselfie @dubfirebrigade @LordMayorDublin
